Aug. 13, 2014

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Negative Population Growth (NPG) is a national nonprofit membership organization that educates the American public and political leaders concerning the effects of population growth.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Negative Population Growth (NPG) released a new President's Column titled, “Toledo Today, America Tomorrow: The Link between Population Growth and Microcystin,” regarding the dangerous state of the Great Lakes, after the mayor of Toledo, Ohio, lifted the city’s ban on tap water, according to a press release.

The release reported that NPG Deputy Director Tracy Canada identified what microcystin is, and exactly how it presents a serious concern for millions of Americans, in organization's online column.

“The experts have determined that Toledo’s microcystin levels have returned to normal… for now,” said Canada in the column. “The Great Lakes are the largest system of fresh surface water on earth, and they provide 84 percent of North America’s supply. [Forty] million people rely on them as a source of drinking water. If we continue on our present course, these lakes could become irreversibly contaminated.”
